Dig Dug aka Agartha Audio has been running his "Beat of the Month Club" via email for a few years now. Each month you recieve 2-3 crispy beats to either listen to or collab with him on. To be added to his list just hit up @AgarthaAudio on Twitter. Now, Agartha Audio makes a Best of the Beat of the Month compilation available for download that features some of his greatest hits. It features some tracks that would later become Uncommon classics in their original beat demo format. Those include "Unhandled Crossings", "Gasoline Beaches", "Pick Your War", "Suicide Bomb" and more. It even includes some beats that are future classics currently in production. All these beats have been scooped up by some fortunate emcees, except for last one which is a brand new exclusive. It's pay what you want, toss Dig Dug some coin for these bangers.

As guitars wail through the night, air thick with drama and tension, Atari gives us a look at evil in ways we might wish we never saw.

It can be picked up digitally or on CD, the CD includes all the instrumentals from Nasa. As Nasa tells it, "The work I put into these 5 tracks felt like 15. I added many details to all the beats throughout the process and really worked hard on it. Duke01 gave me the creative freedom I needed and we came up with an exciting project built from mutual respect". You can pick up the album (or CD with instrumentals) at Bandcamp or Itunes.
